Turkmenistan to export electricity to Afghanistan

Afghanistan will import electricity from a 400 MW gas-fired plant which is currently being built.

According to a report on the Power Engineering International (PEI) website, Turkmenistan will export electricity from the Zerger plant once it is completed.

Once on line, the Turkmen government will export electricity to Afghanistan for 10 years based on a power purchase agreement with the Afghan government. The deal is part of a project to assist in the reconstruction of Afghanistan.

A contract for installing the power generation system at the plant has been awarded to the Mitsubishi Hitachi Power Systems (MHPS), which will supply three sets of M701 DA gas turbine and generator to the plant.
